Types of web hosting

There are four different common types of web hosting: Shared hosting, Virtual private server (VPS), Dedicated server and Cloud hosting.

While all types of hosting servers will work as a storage center for your website, they differ in the amount of control panel, storage, load speed, technical knowledge requirement and reliability.

  • Shared hosting

What is a shared hosting?

In shared hosting, a website is placed on the same server as many other websites, ranging from a few to hundreds/ thousands. All domains may share a common pool of server resources, such as RAM and the CPU. As cost is relative low. Most websites with moderate traffic and standard software are hosted on this type of server. Shared hosting is also accepted widely as the start hosting option as it needs minimum technical knowledge.


No root access, limited ability to deal with high traffic, website performance can be affected by other websites on the same server.


  • Dedicated server hosting

What is dedicated server?

A dedicated server provides the maximum control over the web server that your website is stored on. You rent an entire server and your website is the only website hosted on the server.


With great power comes… well, greater cost. Dedicated servers are much more expensive than shared hosting and it is only recommended to those who require the maximum control and better server performance.

  • Cloud hosting

What is cloud hosting?

Cloud hosting provides unlimited ability to deal with high traffic. Here is how it works: A team of servers work together in order to host a group of websites. This will allow multiple computers to work together to handle high traffic for any website.


Many cloud hosting installation do not provide root access (needed to change server installation and set up some software), higher cost.


  • Virtual Private Server (VPS)

What is VPS hosting?

A VPS hosting Cambodia divides a server into VPS by virtualization technology. This creates a space where each websites is like hosted on their own dedicated server, but they are actually sharing a server with some other users. The users will have root access to their virtual space and better secured hosting environment with this type of hosting. This is a good choice for those who needs greater control at the server level, but do not want to invest in a dedicated server.


Limited ability to handle high traffic, your website performance can still be somewhat affected by other websites on the server.
